LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Today in the C-block, have you heard of Celly? It's a program where school curriculum is designed to let students use their cell phones, iPads and other technology with texting ability in their school work.
One English teacher has his students listen to a book on tape, text their reactions and projects the stream of responses onto a wall for everyone to see. He says the shy kids don't like to talk in group discussions, but they're really active on Celly.
Of course the biggest obstacle is cost. Not all kids can afford devices and parents are paying for the minutes that it takes for their child to complete their work.
